Don't Cave GOP, This Time Deficits DO Matter

Yea, the "cut and paste" page-sized prog-lib talking points are a waste of time to scroll over. It's also boring to see the same stuff pasted into article after article. Of course, that's all the prog-libs have - no ideas and a lame "denial of service" attempt to clog up the debate.

Do deficits matter? Conservatives have sometimes claimed that they don’t. Dick Cheney has said on more than one occasion that, “Reagan taught us that deficits don’t matter.” In fact, he said that to me personally once.

Supply-siders like me have often downplayed the importance of deficits, arguing as George Gilder and Jack Kemp argued in the 1980s that we can ‘grow our way out of it’. But we can only grow our way out of it if we actually grow. And if we don’t grow, there comes a time when debt grows to the point where it really is unsustainable.
